Seeking Land to Lease with Housing Near Portland

Land Seeker Description

Hello,

I am a veterinarian looking to move to Oregon (I currently live in Los Angeles). I am interviewing for a few jobs in the area.

I am a holistic veterinarian, therefore the ability to grow herbs and flowers for flower essences is also very interesting to me (NOT interested in cannabis!). I would also love to grow some vegetables in large enough quantities to sell at local farmers markets and food-to-table enterprises.

I have always dreamed of having my own farm with farm animals and growing crops. I am extremely interested in learning about permaculture and sustainable farming. Because I will have the means to pay for rent, I would like a place that I can rent, while I research everything I can and learn about how to go about this process! I have some family members who know a lot about sustainable farming and might stay with me for part of the year to get everything off the ground.

Thank you for your consideration!

 


What features of the property are essential?

I will need some access to water, and like I said earlier, some form of housing. Anything else would be wonderful but not necessary!


Describe your farming experience

My farming experience is more limited to vegetable gardens and also working with farm animals and husbandry during veterinary school. However, I would very much love the opportunity to learn more about this and grow my experience in this area. I am open to mentorship, but not necessary! I am very self-motivated and in this age of information technology, it would be easy for me to research and find everything I need. I also have friends and family that have a lot of experience with permaculture and these types of farming.


Are you currently farming?

No

What are your short term goals for the land

Short term goals: vegetables in quantities enough to be able to be sold at farmers markets, herbs and flowers for making flower essences for animals.


What are your long term goals

Long term plans would be similar, or see where this path takes me 🙂


Describe your housing needs

I will need some housing, however, because I will also be looking to work part-time at a veterinary clinic in Portland, I would be able to pay for it. I am also open to just purchasing an RV and living on the land until something more stable becomes available.
